Cocktails Intoxica! Tiki

Yellow Boxer

The ‘Yellow Boxer,’ a tequila based Tiki cocktail from the Hemingway Tropical Cocktail Bar in Koln, Germany, circa 1981. Definitely situated within the margarita family, this cocktail stands out through its use of Galliano, an Italian herbal vanilla liqueur, which gives that indescribable quality I look for in a good Tiki drink. Another excellent tequila cocktail featured in Intoxica! is Trader Vic’s ‘El Diablo‘ however since I already featured that cocktail in my review of Trader Vic’s Pacific Island Cookbook (1968) I decided to opt for the Yellow Boxer instead.


3/4 oz lemon juice
3/4 oz orange juice
3/4 oz Rose’s lime cordial
1/4 oz Galliano
1 3/4 oz tequila


  1. Shake vigorously with plenty of ice. Pour unstrained into a glass.
